14 Signs You Grew Up In The 2000s

You and your friends each had a favorite Jonas Brother.

14 Signs You Grew Up In The 2000s

I was born in the late 90s, but I definitely consider myself to be a 2000s kid. These are a few things I think of when I think back on the 2000s and my childhood, and I hope they're relatable to you too and put a nostalgic smile on your face!

1. You Were Obsessed With Hilary Duff

She starred in one of your favorite TV shows and so many of your favorite movies: "Lizzie McGuire", "A Cinderella Story", "Cheaper by the Dozen", "Cadet Kelly", "Material Girls", and many more. You also owned all of her CDs and still know every word to "Come Clean" and "So Yesterday". What a queen.

2. Limited Too (And Eventually Justice) Was Your Go-To Store

It was your one-stop shop for all of your bathing suits, graphic tees, and jewelry.

3. Floam Fantasized You

The science behind it didn't make sense to you, but those commercials worked, and you wanted some. Bad.

4. You Owned Every Mary Kate And Ashley Movie

From "It Takes Two" to "New York Minute," these sisters had you hooked.

5. Your Favorite Books Were Amelia Bedelia, Junie B. Jones, Or Magic Tree House

Your love for reading started with these classic pieces of literature.

6. You Asked For A New American Girl Doll Every Birthday/Christmas

You also had to have the accessories such as the bed, puppy, and plenty of outfits. I mean...your dolls only deserved the best.

7. You Were Jealous Of Everyone Who Had A Razr

You definitely tried to convince your parents that you needed one.

8. Troy And Gabriella Were Your First #RelationshipGoals

HSM had you way too excited for high school.

9. Zoey 101 Made You Want A Jet X

You wanted a pink one, just like Zoey!

10. Disney Channel Crossovers Were Basically Your Favorite Thing Ever

Sweet niblets! No running in my lobby, ya nasty!

11. You Spent Your Afternoons Playing Online With Your Webkinz

Webkinz was so much better than Club Penguin. Don't fight me on this.

12. You Begged Your Parents For Tickets To The Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus Best Of Both Worlds Tour

Miley Cyrus was at her prime as Hannah. The Jonas Brothers (aka the dreamiest boys in all of the land) were the opening act. You couldn't have dreamed of anything better. You tried to get tickets, but the show sold out almost instantly, and you had to settle for watching it on TV. If you're anything like me, you're still a little salty about it.

13. On That Note, You And Your Friends Each Had A Favorite Jonas Brother

Joe was obviously the best.

14. You Eventually Traded In Your Gameboy For A Nintendo DS

You definitely used PictoChat to message your friends that were in the same room as you.

Thank you for the memories, 2000s!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
